Police are investigating whether online “Twitter beef” led to the shooting death of a popular 25-year-old man at a Southwest Atlanta apartment complex early Sunday morning.

According to the Atlanta Journal, Kevin James Scott, 25, was shot twice in the chest by an unknown assailant and left to die in a 4th floor hallway of the City View apartments in Mechanicsville. Police responded to a 911 call at 259 Richardson Street around 3 a.m.

Scott was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he later died.

Scott was affectionately known as “Big Kevin” to his many friends and family. His brother, “Westside Chris”, is a well-known businessman and close associate of superstar rapper Jeezy.

Within hours of the shooting, friends of Scott took to the social networking site Twitter.com to tweet their condolences and to rage at the senseless violence.

His friends say Scott and a local man argued back and forth on Twitter.com just hours before his death. At one point, Scott tweeted code words revealing his location, and he seemed to taunt the man who later deleted his Twitter page.

A remembrance event will be held for Scott on Friday, Nov. 18, at Cream Bar & Bistro at 1919 B Metropolitan Parkway in Atlanta, according to club promoter Tracye Bryant of KBD Entertainment. Also, a candlelight vigil will be held in his honor tomorrow night (Thursday, Nov. 16) at Mays high school.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to contact APD at 404-546-4235 or Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.

Facing a lawsuit from pop idol Justin Bieber, the Stan who accused him of fathering her child has quietly dropped her paternity suit, according to TMZ.

Mariah Yeater, 20, claimed the baby-faced, 17-year-old singer picked her out of the audience and impregnated her on a shelf in a bathroom backstage after one of his concerts at LA’s Staples Center last year.

As ludicrous as that sounds, her allegations sent the gullible media into a feeding frenzy.

In her paternity suit, Yeater said the quickie sex produced her now 4-month-old son. She was suing Bieber for child support.

Bieber and his lawyers vehemently denied her allegations. But was it even necessary for them to respond?

Bieber’s lawyers should proceed with the lawsuit to deter his other Stans from pulling a similar stunt to make a name for themselves.

According to the National Enquirer, Kris Humphries is ignoring that 30-page prenup requiring him to keep his mouth shut about Kim’s silicone loaded butt.

KIM KARDASHIAN’s big booty is a big, fat fake, sources say – and her estranged hubby KRIS HUMPHRIES is threatening to expose the truth!

The reality TV sexpot insists her bubble butt is all natural . . . But some insiders claim the curvy 31-year-old beauty uses butt pads and say Kris filmed a video that proves his estranged wife’s prized posterior is phony!

Kris remarked to pals that, while he loves Kim’s shapely butt, it’s not the same as what you see on the red carpet…or TV.

“Kris told his buddies that it takes a lot of work for Kim to make her bottom look as good as it does,” said a source. “He revealed all her secrets – how she uses ‘booty pads,’ Spanx and other things to enhance it. When she takes off the Spanx, the pads and everything else, it’s not the same.

“He knows what the real thing looks like – be­cause he’s recorded it on his cell phone camera!”

Beyonce Stans on Tumblr.com posted these pics of Saloon singer Beyonce at poolside in Miami, Florida today. She was wearing a blue see-through frock that revealed what looks like an oddly shaped belly. Joking about babies is never funny, but it doesn’t look she’s she’s carrying a human being in there. Beyonce never conducts herself like a normal person would, and her strange “pregnancy” is a perfect example of that.

Joining Bey at poolside were hubby Jay Z, who performed in concert last night, her nephew Julez, family members and various other leeches.
